"Nine Tiles Panic" is the follow-on game of the game "Nine Tiles", an Oink Game that is only available in Japan. Both games are created by the same authors. "Nine Tiles" also is a speedy puzzle game, but the new "Nine Tiles Panic" adds decision making and tactics to the game, so that you can experience a totally new kind of fun game play.
Each player gets one of these tile sets, which consists of nine different tiles. The fronts and backs of the tiles show different road parts of your city. While playing you can flip and turn the tiles as you like. The only important things are that you create a city which is exactly 3x3 tiles big and that you connect the roads. Completing such a city is rather easy...
But these condition cards make everything a little more difficult. In each round you draw three condition cards randomly and in the end everyone gets points according to how well you satisfied the conditions. The points you will get, depend on the order of successfully satisfied condition cards. You can choose if you want to use the full capacity of your brain and fulfill all three conditions or if you want to focus on one of them and be the first player to fulfill it. It might me a good idea to focus on a condition nobody might me interested in. Amongst the condition cards you will find really difficult ones as well!
Be careful! It can be dangerous to think about a solution too long! The first player that finishes their city can turn the hour glass and from that point on everyone has only 90 seconds left to finish theirs. Players who can't finish their city in that time, won't get any points!
If two or more players get the same amount of points for one condition card, the player who was quicker wins. This is why it is very important to be as quick as possible. You can definitely try to fully use the 90 seconds for completing a task perfectly as well... this is where opinions differ.
These sweet wooden alien pawns are also included in the game! You will find many high quality components in the usual compact size box! You can play "Nine Tiles Panic" with 2 to 5 players. We are proud presenting you our new game and think you can have a lot of fun with it!
